My code looks more or less like this: (defun org-parse (f) (with-temp-buffer (find-file f) (let* ((parsed (org-element-parse-buffer)) (all (append org-element-all-elements org-element-all-objects)) (mapped (org-element-map parsed all (lambda (item) (strip-parent item))))) (pp mapped)))) strip-parent is basically (plist-put props :parent nil) for elements properties. However it turns out there are more recursive objects, like :title #("Headline 1" 0 10 (:parent (headline #2 (section So I'm wondering do I have to do it by hand for all cases or is there some way to output only a simple AST without those nested objects?
